Insider Gaming understands that the next game in the DOOM franchise will be revealed at this year’s Xbox Games Showcase on June 9.

Codenamed/placeholder title ‘Year Zero’, the game is understood to have a final name of ‘Doom: The Dark Ages’ and has been in development for at least four years.

Last year, I heard early details of the next entry in the DOOM franchise, which was described to me as a ‘medieval inspired Doom world’. While it doesn’t give much information to go on, ‘Year Zero’, ‘Dark Ages’ and ‘Medieval Inspiration’ start to paint a clear picture of where the series is going next. Perhaps we’re delving further into the life of a Doomslayer in medieval times? A prequel of sorts?

Earlier this year, after Bethesda’s new arrival, rumors of a new Doom game started circulating again. Registered trademark, ‘IDKFA’, is the best known cheat code in the series. Last month, The Verge’s Tom Warren At first he teased A rumor we can now independently confirm is that DOOM will be making its way to the Xbox Games Showcase.

The DOOM series was a resounding success for Xbox and ID Software. In 2020, a LinkedIn description from an ID Software employee stated that the game generated over $450 million in revenue.
